Fleshj27Day Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 18, 2015


Day trip. Took advantage of National Park no fee day. FREE! Hit the high points but didn't do anything remotely epic. Laid out the ground work for an in-depth trip next year.

Seriously, this place is a misanthrope's dream. Pretty as the Grand Canyon without the crowds. DO IT!

many trips for hiking, and some mountain biking. I love the Moab area and western Utah.

Date Climbed: Mar 15, 1980

Bark Eater

A long, long time ago. Mike and I enjoyed a five day back pack trip from the top, along the white rim, camping along the river, back along the white rim, and return. Beautiful spring weather. Almost no people. Had to resort to CO River water and didn't get sick!

Lillian and I came back in spring of 1984 for car camping and day hiking along the plateau. Magical place!

Spent a few days here in 1998 and visited several of the sites. Stayed in Moab and had a real good time with all there is to do in this area. Hope to go back someday.

Day Hiker

It was nice and HOT for this midday hike. If you don't like heat, avoid hiking to the White Rim in July and August. I like the heat, so I did it August 10.

We've been here many times and have always enjoyed it. Took the mtn. bikes from the top of Shafer Trail (near the "neck") down to the river... what a ride!
